Oolong “Qi Lan” (“Magic orchid”), harvest 2020.
In appearance: large, burgundy-brown flagella of twisted leaves. The fragrance is intensive, spicy-floral. The liquor is transparent, with a shade of white grapes.
The bouquet of ready-made tea is multifaceted and vivid, spicy-floral, with woody, citrus and berry notes. The aroma is tender and high, floral. The taste is full-bodied and silky, sweet, a bit spicy, with a fine woody tartness, berry sourness and lingering finish.
Brew tea with hot water (80-90°С) in a porcelain gaiwan or in a teapot of porous clay. The proportion is 4 g per 100 ml. The time of the first steeping is about 5-7 seconds. After that do short steeps (just for 1-2 seconds), increasing steeping time for each subsequent step, if necessary. You can repeat this method up to 9 times.
Oolong “Qi Lan” is an excellent choice for daily tea breaks: multi-faceted and soft, sweet and heartening.
